Best Answer

The Navigation Acts, directed the flow of goods between England and the colonies. Colonial merchants who had goods to send to England could not use foreign ships- even if those ships offered cheaper rates. The Navigation Acts also prevented the colonies from sending certain products, such as sugar or tobacco, outside England's empire.
